Woodland Shade Gardening

Woodland shade gardening with a purpose – pleasure, creativity, rainwater collection!

Elephant ears

Remember those elephant ear bulbs I planted in the back yard?  And then discovered they are poisonous.  And then dug them up to plant them in the front yard, outside the fence, where Katy & Emily can’t chew on them.  And then discovered I had planted one bulb upside down in the original planting?  Well, being planted upside down had the shoots growing toward the bottom of the bulb as the shoots worked their way up to the sunlight.  So when I replanted them in the front yard, and planted the upside-down bulb right side up, the shoots were then headed back into the ground.  BUT – they corrected themselves and VOILA!
